Should maximum age of life be extended past 110?

Since life expectancy continues to increase, it seems reasonable that ESPlanner's maximum age of life (demographics tab) could be extended past age 110. Perhaps this would slow down some calculations, but I'm guessing this would only be for users who implement age 115 or 120 years.

While this only impacts a tiny fraction of people today, it could become more likely in a generation or more.


New feature request "back one" button

It would be great to be able to easily reset your profile to the immediate previous version with a single click on a "back one" button.

Let's say your profile is set and you run a report. This is now the "active" profile. Then you make a change which can be a single variable or much more complex changes and run another report.

If your results are worse with the new "active" profile, you would be able to return to the previous profile after clicking the "back one" button.

Breakout Roth retirement accounts in reports?


With the growth of Roth IRAs/Roth 401ks, should these be broken out (displayed) in the reports? Perhaps these could be labeled "tax-sheltered retirement accounts" and "Roth retirement accounts" (or assets or something similar).

If/when you decide to rethink the reports, please consider this.
